Si lo que buscas es tranquilidad, naturaleza y gente agradable Arenas de San Pedro es tu sitio. Katy y Fidel son dos personas maravillosas que desde el primer momento te hacen sentir como en casa, además de ser sinceros y divertidos.
Arenas de San Pedro is situated within easy reach of the Gredos Mountain range which offers the best trekking in central Spain and also casual walks around the neighbouring villages. Whatever time of year you visit you will find something to delight you and where better to stay than with Katy and Fidel.
They are both very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and offer comfortable and roomy accommodation. Their home is your home. The breakfasts were very imaginative and served with great enthusiasm by Fidel. We stayed for one week and had something different everyday....including local setas/CEOs in the October season. It was a pleasure to stay there and we thoroughly recommend the Katy and Fidel experience!!!!
Katy and Fidel are super friendly, helpful, caring and furthermore, enthusiastic food lovers. We appreciated their kind advice on hiking trails and eating out possibilities, and very much liked our two night stay.
